We pride ourselves on specializing in Aussie designs. So this must be a very rare species of Elephant that lives in the wilds of the Northern Territory of Australia.
As with many of our designs this intarsia is built in layers.
- The picture frame with the background is straightforward and should be made first.
- The legs and body are then glued on top of the background with the front foot overlapping the frame.
- The head is made separately and glued on top of the body to give a jumbo charging out of the frame.
I have seen one of these made by a customer who enlarged the plan on a photocopier. It ended up 1.2m (4") tall. He used grey and yellow timber for the elephant and the finished piece looked pretty darn impressive.
